Capitals backup goaltender Justin Peters and coach Mitch Korn connect tonight after Peters’ first start of the young season
I just like to have a very positive outlook on everything, so I try to stay positive around the guys. And it’s contagious too.
All of the things that were said about him have been the exact opposite.
[Tom Wilson is] not close enough where we have to debate it. I think it’ll just be a conversation with the trainers, probably Willy, myself and [general manager Brian MacLellan] and see what’s the best route to take. I don’t think it’s something that will consume us. We’ll talk about it one of these days when he gets the clearance to do that
Trotz, the supposedly defense-first coach, has given the Caps D the green light to pinch in the zone to maintain offensive possession.
I think it was Karl [Alzner] that got it all set up. Probably [got it from] the dollar store, I’d say. I don’t know. The hat’s pretty nice though. Hopefully we’ve got a case to keep that thing nice and shiny for the season.
I need Marcus to pull the trigger a little more than he has and he will. He’s going to get some good looks. I’ve seen him shoot the puck, so I know he can score some goals for us.
We have a plan when we’re going back to the pucks and it’s just a matter of execution on our end, and each guy played fantastic
I was really happy with Mike [Green]. Not only was he contributing offensively, but he was really making good plays, good decisions. Defensively, he was really strong. For a debut, I didn’t know how he would be just coming off a little bit of an injury. He was real strong. I’m glad he got through that. I think he’s looking forward to a good season now.
